The Space Zone was a themed zone, funded by the Science Foundation Ireland. Norah is a faculty member at the International Space University, Kevin works for Airbus making sure spaceships survive their trip and Jenny uses satellites to study the oceans and coastal areas. James, the winner of this zone, works in Japan making satellites and robots that explore space and Dominic is an optical engineer at the European Space Agency.
The zone was on topic, with students engaging really well with space and the engineers’ different areas of work. James was the most active in the event, making up over half of all live chat lines by engineers and, together with Dominic, accounted for over 80% of all answers in ASK.
